This fascinating village is located just across the border from popular
Dordogne, in the Lot department, and is an ideal attraction to visit when you
stay at one of our family-friendly villas.
Noted as a UNESCO site, Rocamadour is regarded as one of
the Grand Sites of France. The village has been fascinating people since the
Middle Ages, so much so that the pilgrims since the 12th-century have
been crossing the entirety of Europe just to pray here. The site itself was
built upon a shrine to a Madonna known for its healing qualities, which made
the village a must-stop for those on the Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage path.
Famous pilgrims include Henri II of England, Louis XI of France and Eleanor of
Today, thousands descend upon the village in the heart of
the Parc Naturel Régional des Causses du Quercy, not only for its historical
importance but to take in the breath-taking views across the canyon. You can
wander along the long, narrow paved street that takes you on a journey through
time and to some of the most notable monuments in France, or stop at the one of
the many cafés along the way for respite.
